DM Barak proposes retreat with leave or die option for settlers?
Yisrael Hayom reports today that DM Ehud Barak proposes in an interview to be published in full in tomorrow’s edition his plan to retreat from most of the West Bank – either with agreement with the Palestinians or unilaterally.
Barak proposes to retain the settlement blocs of the Etzion Bloc, Maaleh Adumim and Ariel, estimating that 80-90% of the Jews living in Judea and Samaria reside in those locations.
As for Jews living outside these areas, Barak would offer three programs:
1. Individuals and families could leave and receive compensation.
2. Communities can relocate as communities,
3. Those who do not want to move will not be compensated and will be left behind when Israel retreats. They will stay under PA rule for a “trial period” of five years.
It should be noted that the Israeli media does not celebrate Yom Kippur by publishing satirical fake items. Such items are published in the Purim edition.

I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
